What is dry van shipping?

A dry van is a standard, non-refrigerated trailer that protects goods from outside elements such as weather, dust, and theft. It is the most common type of trailer used in the freight transportation industry.

Widely used for its versatility and cost-effectiveness, dry van shipping is suitable for transporting goods that do not require special temperature conditions and do not need specific handling requirements. Dry van trailers can be easily loaded and unloaded at warehouses, distribution centers, or shipping ports.
